Sarah Eide & Greg Klyma at Passim
In an industry that can often feel over saturated with stale soundscapes, lifeless lyrics, and predictable patterns, Sarah Eide’s music cuts through the clutter. Bursting out of any genre’s box, her music deftly weaves influences of roots, folk, jazz and pop, creating a singular sound that is uniquely her own. Songs that are thoughtful, quirky, and honest, are matched with a signature musical style that is equal parts complex and catchy. With skillful piano playing and a powerful voice, these songs are what pulls her audience in and keeps them coming back.
Eide’s newest release, “Dream on Hold” (May 6, 2019) is a heart-throbbing album that depicts the unique, modern challenges of a real woman experiencing motherhood for the first time. Music from the album has been featured on The Bluegrass Situation, For Folk’s Sake, NYS Music and more, with critics calling it “an enthralling Americana storybook” (CITY Newspaper). Sarah will be celebrating the release of this album with some guest musicians accompanying her.
Greg Klyma is a road-tested troubadour and relentless songwriter. He was an Iguana Fund grantee in 2017. With the release of Never Knew Caroline a couple summers ago, Greg had an epiphany about all the unrecorded songs still in his notebooks. He has challenged himself to release 3 albums in 2019. He also printed his first book of lyrics as a companion piece to FAKE SONGS – his first exclusively digital album. On July 25th, we’ll hear songs from Caroline, FAKE SONGS, Maybe the Ocean, as well as a sampling of what’s to follow.
